CAYTon Corinthians pulled off a great escape in their third division match at home to Whitby Wanderers, coming back from 4-0 down after 70 minutes to win the game 6-4.
The league newcomers looked to be in full control at half-time, Simon Taylor’s hat-trick and a Danny Wilson effort putting them four goals clear and seeming coasting to success.
On the hour mark, player-manager John Best changed the formation around, with Mikey Dennis moving from left-back to the right side of midfield and Dave Gaddass coming on to play at centre-back.
This sparked the hosts into life, with Dennis at the heart of most of the good moves as Cayton took a grip of the game, but the score remained the same, and with 20 minutes left it looked likely to be the visitors heading home with the points.
Best then pulled a goal back, and braces from Dennis and Holden put Cayton 5-4 up, with a cracking shot from Tom Sixsmith completing the win for the hosts.
Dennis was named man of the match as he was the main instigator of the Cayton revival, while Taylor had an impressive game for Wanderers.
